In October 2014, Sweden became the first country in the world to launch a feminist foreign policy. Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström is now launching a handbook on feminist foreign policy, so even more of us can contribute to a more gender equal world.
A feminist foreign policy means applying a systematic gender equality perspective throughout the whole foreign policy agenda. Following extensive international gender equality work over almost four years, there are a number of lessons that the Swedish Government wishes to share – methods, experiences and examples of how the policy is conducted. The hope is that the handbook will be a valuable resource for all contributors to international gender equality work.
